Councilman Suspects Assault on London Man in Brooklyn Was ‘Knockout’ Attack

CBS New York, March 25, 2014

A tourist from London in town for a wedding was attacked and beaten in Brooklyn early Tuesday, in what a City Councilman said might have been another “knockout” attack.

As 1010 WINS’ Sonia Rincon reported, the 65-year-old man was attacked on McDonald Avenue near 18th Avenue in Borough Park, Brooklyn, as he left the wedding around 2:30 a.m. Tuesday.

The attackers grabbed him by the head and threw him to the ground. No property was taken.

{snip} But New York City Councilman David Greenfield (D-44th) said it “appears” to be one.

“He was attacked from behind by two individuals, brutally attacked,” Greenfield said. “They did not take anything from him, and he was in such bad condition that he had to be hospitalized.”
